Put yourself in my position:
- I love our new stadium
- I believe wholeheartedly that the stadium will be a success
- I excuse the stadium most of their transgressions
- I promote the stadium at every opportunity I get
AND, what do I get as a thank you?
Farging noise and empty promises.
A couple of weeks back the noise levels from the stadium were quite high and I spent a sleepless night – I didn’t publish a word about my sad experience as I was ASSURED by stadium management that they would handle future events in a far better fashion.
Well – the NMB Sevens, Rugby’s biggest party, is on the go and I cannot sleep for the noise and NMB Stadium Management have thrown their neighbours a middle finger with ‘musicians’ who declare that they are going to; “Wake this city up” – listen to the recording below.
Never mind that I have devoted reams of column centimetres to promoting the stadium and rugby’s “biggest party” and desperately need some sleep before dedicating tomorrow to the same thing …………..
Have a listen to the recording below that I took from my bedroom and tell me if you would sleep with that farging noise?
The above was recorded using my tablet – no enhancements. We are in Parsons Hill overlooking the stadium. Last night’s noise was far less. Listen on for my comments as the noise levels continue. It is close to 11:00 pm as I post this article.
Am I being the proverbial Afrikaans four sided box? Should I just allow the stadium to continue with this abuse?
